Villa Buzzati, a Venetian Villa located just outside Belluno, is the place where the writer, journalist and painter Dino Buzzati was born in 1906. Many a short story of his were inspired by this location.
Villa Buzzati was built in 1532, but the present buildings are the result of several modifications carried out by the Buzzati family after acquiring the Villa in 1811.
The Villa was extended and completely frescoed, including some work by the celebrated painter Pompeo Molmenti. As a result, it became an example of Romantic architecture.
Today, visitors can discover Villa Buzzati through a tour that covers the entire 16th-century complex, including the yards, the red chapel of Saint Peregrine (Pellegrino), the barns and the historical gardens.
A visit is enriched by information about Dino Buzzati's life and work, as well as his relationship with the location.
Today, part of Villa Buzzati is a Bed & Breakfast, open all year around. It is the ideal starting point to visit the cities of Belluno, Feltre, Treviso and Venezia, and to discover other Venetian Villas.
